    Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here. 

    because sex workers invented it. can we stop trying so hard to ~elevate~ stripping/pole dance from its roots? thx

    reblogging this with sterling’s comment because i’ve been seeing it on my dash with her url on it but her comment ripped off kinda making it look like she supports pole dancing being stolen from sex workers

    Last words of unarmed black youth gunned down by law enforcement. 

    "There are reasons why white gun’s rights activists can walk into a Chipotle restaurant with assault rifles and be seen as gauche nuisances while unarmed black men are killed for reaching for their wallets or cell phones, or carrying children’s toys. Guns aren’t for black people, either.”

    from America is Not For Black People

    if you live your whole life and then die without making a purposeful choice to become a white ally then American racism becomes your legacy.

    This hurts me so much

    So, i read this awful article using bathroom “scare tactics,” which was claiming that trans women are potential rapists. “Men” who dress as women to gain access to women only spaces and force them self on women. This really upset me and i had a bit of a Twitter rant. They were read by others and i was urged to post them in other media also, so i am posting them here. (Edited together in easy reading format from top to bottom.)

    This is the link in the first tweet about how there are no cases of a trans woman attacking a cis woman in public restrooms: Link 1.

    This is the link in the second tweet about the cases where trans people are assaulted in the bathroom by cis people: Link 2.

    if you’re cis and you follow me i’m gonna need you to reblog this

    don’t care if you’re cis or trans, this is important.

    Today Also Marks the Anniversary of Emmett Till’s Murder

    On August 28, 1955—eight years before the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom—Emmett Till was murdered in Money, Mississippi for allegedly flirting with a white store clerk, Carolyn Bryant.

    Bryant’s husband, Roy, and his half brother J. W.  Milam kidnapped the 14-year-old Chicagoan from his great uncle’s home and beat him, shot him in the head, tied his body to a large metal cotton gin fan with barbed wire and dropped him into the Tallahatchie River. Three days later the teenager’s bloated, mutilated body was pulled from the river.  

    Till’s mother, Mamie, insisted on an open-casket funeral for her only son so that the world might see the brutality he suffered. Two Black publications, Jet and The Chicago Defender, ran pictures of Till’s casket. 

    Despite overwhelming evidence of their guilt, the two white men who killed Emmett Till were acquitted by an all-white jury. They went on to sell the story of murdering the teenager to Look magazine for $4,000.

    The horrific death of Emmett Till is largely credited with intensifying the push for Black voter registration in Mississippi and serving as a catalyst for the civil rights movement in general.

    ONE THING YOU SHOULD NEVER CALL AN ATTRACTIVE WOMAN

    There are many ways to kindly and respectfully compliment the way a woman looks. But one descriptor that should be left out of such comments? “Exotic.”

    Cristen Conger of the How Stuff Works podcast, Stuff Mom Never Told You, takes on the topic of “exotic” beauty.

    Watch the full video with Conger explaining how Lupita Nyong’o was “extocized” during the 2014 Oscar season here.
